  • iPads Coming to WHMS, EHMS & BHMS

    Posted October 27, 2014

    Have you heard? Each sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade middle school student will be receiving an iPad as a part of our One to World initiative (www.bloomfield.org/onetoworld). As part of the process of issuing the iPads to students, we have an informational parent packet. The parent packet includes information that provides a rationale for the iPads, and importantly, the necessary permission forms for your child to receive their iPad and Gmail account (see attached document below). The signature pages for the permission forms can be found on p. 9 (iPad) and p. 10 (Gmail account). We are asking that parents return their permission forms by Friday, November 7. Students will be turning in their forms to their grade-level teachers.
